The network of BBC Local Radio Stations will voice their own bulletins, rather than rely on INRIX, from June.

"Radio Today" reports here (dated 6th February):-

"In an email to all staff this morning, Chris Burns, Head of Audio & Digital, BBC England, said “completely customisable traffic and travel scripts will be sent to each station to be read out by a member of staff”, adding that the change will “also ensure that we are providing our licence fee payers with the best value for money.”

Staff at INRIX were also told the news in a conference call, including details of potential job losses and building closures."

Perhaps when the change is implemented Local Radio will cease the ridiculous thumping music which not only drowns the presenter/bulletin reader but is a severe distraction to drivers. But I doubt it.
